It just hit me that I don’t know why it is that I can be such an open book here – so open about how crap I am with work – and at the same time, have such adverse reactions to criticism. They are only telling me things I know already… things I am more than happy to share with the world… so why is it so painful? And why do my supervisors never hear this from me, if I am such an open book? Contradiction, no? WTF is up with that?
